The club’s waterways licence covers the boats for club nights and club activities on the river Ouse. However If you paddle outside of club sessions or activities you will not be licensed, and may be subject to a fine. If you want to take a boat on the Ouse outside of activities organised by the club, you will need to consider purchasing your own BC membership. This will provide you with your own Waterways Licence and Insurance.
